Michael Hoffman It sure looks as though you folks are going to be having a blast. I wish I could get in on this. But fall means football and hunting, and between the two I can't do other things.
What position do you play?

Thats what we are thinking, Jeff.What is your availabiity? I really am hoping for a Saturday tour, as would love to see CSD and his lovely bride join in. Although I know this day is tough for Buddy.unless we start an early tour which includes breakfast.

Saturdays are a tough call for me no matter when they start.  Don't worry about it though, I'll make it work if I can.  The only times I'm absolutely not available for a Milwaukee tour are the first weekend in October when I'll be at the American Royal BBQ in Kansas City, and whichever weekend we choose for the Contingent's Chicago tour being arranged by abe_froeman.

This sounds really wonderful and like lots of fun-
and I would love to participate and so would Mr.
BUT
September we are completely booked. (except for Sept 1,2,3)
So that is our sad availability story...
1st weekend of Sept or it's Oct for us.
We are, however, completely free in October.....

Should we do the Chicago gathering in September and Milwaukee gathering in October then? According to the chart 9-1 and 9-8 are the best days for Chicago.

Yes, prior things in the works should be nailed down first and early September would probably work best IMO.

Nail down your Chi-town tour in September-October in Milwaukee is usually an awesome, warm time of year.I see no conflict and would love lots of get togrthers! We dont get cold until early November, despite rumors!

s_d, maybe you should borrow that "doodle" availability program from abe_froeman.  Might save you a lot of aggravation trying to figure who can do what when.

I have been thinking.....the Bay View area has some fantastic restaurants now, along with Groppi's Italian grocery. The lake is also right there, also, with neat views of downtown across the bay. What does everyone think?

Groppi's looks like it would be an interesting place to visit.

A Bayview-centric tour would be nice, and so would something drawing from both the East Side and Bayview--whatever you and Aimee decide.
 
Groppi's is a nice little market with some good deli items, though we'll have to haul our goods to a nearby park to chow down.
 
Other Bayview (or vicinity) places to visit could include Palomino, Honeypie, Riviera Maya or umpteen other Mex places to the west, several Mexican bakeries to the west, Three Brothers, Dom and Phil Demarini's Pizza, Transfer Pizza, At Random, Tenuta's Restaurant, and many other places.

Now that we have September 1st nailed down for The Contingent's Chicago Tour, we should start looking seriously at October dates for this one.  From our end, the only date we absolutely couldn't be there would be the weekend of October 5-7.  The rest of the month is doable.

DOODLE POLL !!!
 
I hope no one minds that I've taken the liberty to devise a Doodle poll. Maybe it will help? It covers all of the weekend days in October.

Since not everyone in The Contingent visits Roadfood as frequently as others, let me suggest to the organizers of this event that they also post it on Facebook, and also send out PM's alerting people to check out the thread and fill out the Doodle Poll.
 
If you need a list of current members, I can provide it.

Annie, it's kind of like Abraham Lincoln once said: "All of The Contingent are on Roadfood some of the time, and some of The Contingent are on Roadfood all of the time, but you'll never find all of The Contingent on Roadfood all of the time."
 
Anyway, I'll send you as complete a list as I can muster it.

I'm probably good for all of October. Possibly not the 20th & 21st but I'm not sure yet.

Gyp, the 20th and 21st are shaping up to be the two best days.  Come on dude, make it happen.

I love October, and this sounds like a great tour.  I think my favorite thing I've done with the Contingent to date was that fall tour a couple years ago where we walked by those Frank Lloyd Write houses.  We went to an awesome variety of places on that day, and this tour in the works sounds like a similar deal.  Filled out the Doodle, hope this comes together.

Doodle completed- we currently have nothing scheduled for October, so hopefully nothing we can't get out of will come up.

My crystal ball also finds the 13th a bad day unless we have it in New Orleans.

Looking at the doodle poll, September 20th and 21st seem to be the strongest days.  There are a couple of people who haven't yet responded, but it looks like that's the weekend, right?
